In the last thirty years, volatility modeling in financial time series has drawn considerable attention in the literature of financial econometrics. The workhorse model of volatility has been the ARCH model and its generalized counterparts in that period. Although these models have proven to be useful in capturing some stylized facts of volatility in financial time series such as the cluster effect and have been applied to diverse areas with success such as modeling systematic risk changes in the market, asset pricing via models like I-CAPM or APT, or testing market efficiency; they have a major drawback. They are univariate. That is why, a typical ARCH or GARCH-type model allows to detect the effects of prior shocks and conditional variances in the errors of the same variable. However, thanks to a growing literature, it is now known that volatility spillovers (both in the form of shock and conditional variance transmissions) between two or more variables might exist. In this paper, I study the potential volatility interactions between the major stock exchange indices in the global financial centers and in Turkey. To be precise, the dataset includes observations on the returns of the leading indices in Turkey, UK, Germany, Japan and the US. For that purpose, I employ a multivariate model called the Extended Constant Conditional Correlation GARCH (ECCC-GARCH) model whose identification properties are developed by Nakatani and Terasvirta (N-T). ECCC-GARCH model is a useful tool because N-T have developed a powerful LR test for this model which allows to check whether there really exist volatility spillovers between the variables in a dataset or not. Results of this study indicate the existence of universal shock transmissions from the stock exchange returns in the global financial centers to those in Turkey. There also exist conditional variance interactions between the USA, UK and Turkey. These results suggest that the stock exchange in Turkey well integrated to the world but not quite suitable to be used by stock exchange investors in the USA and UK for the purpose of global risk diversification.

It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.
The editor has the following responsibilities:
1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
6.The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
8.The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
